I think we need to at least start looking at other available kickers. Hartley is just too inconsistent for me to be comfortable with. You can 't ride on his accomplishments last season. Even though we played badly in some areas, the game came down to a chip shot field goal that he missed...and that's the bottom line.

We need LSU's kicker lol

I've got to disagree with you there. The team certainly didn't play well. But I can't say that we were out coached. Huh Uh......I won't heat of it. It's heresy I tell you!!!

Gonzales had a field day catching the ball, mostly in the first half, but the damage had been done.

Offense looked inoffensive at times. We didn't run the ball very much or very effectively- 16 attempts for 43 yards. We lived and died by the home run ball, and that killed us. Yes, Lance Moore had an 80 yard grab for a TD, but Brees also gave up an INT on a deep pass, which just killed the drive, and a couple more missed/dropped deep balls which led to 3 and outs.

Penalties! Stupid penalties all over the field. How man pass interference calls were there on us? Ayodele's horse collar tackle on 2-1 from our 1, it would have been 3rd-1 instead of 1-1.

Time of Possession: ATL 45:50 NOR 27:15. If you can't continue drives, you can't score points.

We beat ourselves, and have only ourselves to blame, NOT JUST the kicker.

The return game was kind of our only bright spot. Moore's return in the 1st quarter set us up for an easy 6 yard drive to score.
ALLLLLLLL of this!

Don't put this all on Hartley, we lost as a TEAM!

That has nothing to do with it.

I do think he's cute, but I don't think placing the blame solely on him is right.

I'm just playing... I couldn't agree with you more. Stuff happens.

Sadly, if you could point to one play, that would be it. Sucks it came down to that. Hartley has the potential to be a good kicker.
